DAPHNE, Ala. (AP) — Federal court officials say an Alabama seafood company has agreed to stop processing fish in the wake of complaints raised by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

U.S. District Court officials said in a statement Wednesday that the permanent injunction is aimed at preventing distribution of the products by BEK Catering LLC, which does business as Floppers Foods LLC of Daphne, Alabama, and its co-owners.

A federal complaint alleges that BEK Catering, which prepared and distributed seafood soups sold under the names Shrimp Locksley and Mama’s Gumbo, caused food to become “adulterated” and misbranded.

Federal authorities say the FDA found unsanitary conditions during multiple inspections of the company’s facilities, which they said could cause illness for consumers.
